If you're interested, I strongly recommend this book http://www.amazon.com/Amish-Paradox-...2666665&sr=1-1 I had lived around the Amish for years, but this book helped me understand them.

If you have a Sally's hair care store near you, they have a plastic hairpin that really holds. It is shaped like the old fashioned , squiggly plastic hairpins but there is an extra squiggle inside which makes them hold better. Comes in a choice of clear or brown.

Oooh, even better, there's one here in town. I have one each of the plastic ones from two sets that I got years ago, lost one from each.

Is that a Good Hair Days pin? I have a mess of those, they do not work as well for me...my hair is fine and finicky though. The Amish pins are uber cheap though, which makes me as nearly every other hair toy I covet is NOT cheap.

I really can't remember if they had a name on the package, I just know they are about 2 1/2" long and hold my hair really well. But I have course, wavy hair so maybe they won't work for you. I was going to try the Amish pins but I got sticker shock when I saw the shipping cost.
